Juventus midfielder Hernanes will be sidelined for the next three weeks after picking up a thigh injury.
Hernanes was forced off at halftime with Juventus ahead and going on to beat AC Milan on Saturday.
And now it seems Hernanes has picked up a thigh injury and will be out for three weeks.
A training report on Juve’s official website read: “Missing out again was Hernanes, who underwent tests to ascertain the exact nature of the problem picked up during last weekend’s meeting with Milan.
“These revealed a first-grade tear in the adductor longus muscle in the midfielder’s right thigh. He is expected to be out of action for approximately three weeks.”
As well as the Champions League game with Manchester City on Wednesday, an expected three-week absence will see Hernanes miss league games with Palermo, Lazio and Fiorentina.
Hernanes will not feature in Juve’s final Champions League group game against Sevilla, but could return in the last game before the mid-season break, which is away to Carpi.
